Concept

The folding chair Sóley, penned by the Icelandic designer Valdimar Harðarson in the year 1982. As far back as 30 years ago, this bold and daring design made quite an impact, with Sóley scooping the Roscoe Award in the US as well as two Good Design Awards in Japan, winning the title “Furniture of the Year 1984”, and not forgetting the design award of Design-Center Stuttgart. Sóley’s relaunch as industrially produced series is celebrated with a strictly limited edition of 275 units, hand-signed by Valdimar Harðarson personally.
